ALCOSAN Scholastic Outreach
Professional Development Workshop Series
The Science and Environmental Education Advisory Collaborative (SEEAC) is a professional learning community of formal and informal educators from across the ALCOSAN service area. The group meets quarterly to network, share best practices, learn about ALCOSAN’s proposed educational programs and activities, and provide input to inform the work of the Scholastic Outreach Department to best meet the needs of students. There are a variety of speakers and activities for the participants to engage with and members of SEEAC are eligible to take advantage of free professional development workshops designed and approved for ACT 48 hours, which are provided by the Allegheny Intermediate Unit 3.
This year’s workshop series will offer a total of 14 ACT 48 hours over 4 workshops scheduled for September 2016, November 2016, January 2017, and March 2017. All workshops are scheduled to take place at the ALCOSAN Wastewater Treatment Plant. Additional information regarding the workshops, including topics and registration are provided below.
